If you haven't yet experienced the healing properties of hot springs you're missing out on something that could really make a difference in your life, your level of health and well-being. Hot springs are filled with water that's usually considered to be medicinal. It has a very high content of minerals and comes from the core of the earth. Some of this water arrives on the surface naturally and some of it comes from drilling, but either way it has much to offer. The chemical and physical characteristics of this water are thought to have therapeutic effects that restore people to health and can relieve chronic and problematic conditions that they have been affected by. They have very powerful mineralization, ionization, gases, radioactivity, and PH variances. The minerals and compounds that these waters have in them are generally very closely related to the soil that they flow along, and they contain iron, boron, arsenic, sodium, chrome, phosphorous, carbon silicon, fluorine, bromine, iodine, and other elements. When people go into the hot springs the temperature shocks their body and the cells open up, allowing the compounds to come to them.

The effects of this are many and various, but some of the most significant ones stand out. The hot springs are thought to help stimulate the body's immune system, natural defences, purify the blood and eliminate harmful toxins. They also help people with rheumatic conditions by reactivating the delayed metabolism that most of them experience and re-educating their thermo regulating system. They also act as natural painkillers and sedate the nervous system, so they're very good at addressing issues like anxiety and stress, as well as people who deal with chronic pain of any kind. They relax muscles as well, and they help to tone the body. There is so much that these baths can do, but they should be handled with care and people should start out slowly, with water that's not too hot. It's necessary to work up to the very hot water and to follow all of the instructions that are given for the bath to keep from doing any harm to the body, since the heat can raise blood pressure if a person is not used to it.
